One in particular is dear to him, a lab activity entitled "The HR Diagram and Stellar Evolution."  Cook has a long-time interests in 

1) observational evidence of stellar evolution reflected in period changes in Cepheid variable stars, and 

2) helping people expand their worldviews by better appreciating things that happen slowly over million of years.
